This is a lovely hotel with friendly staff and it was very comfortable. It was expensive though and there was no where else but there to get breakfast which was again pretty expensive. Other problem was we booked it through Booking . Com & the hotel took full payment from our credit card , which was fine but we weren't...

I am very disappointed. Pictures just show the surrounding but It does not mater when you have such awful rooms. You come from trekking and you wish to relax... Rooms are not for living. It is a storage where you have to crawl all the time. Otherwise you'll hit you head. You'll have a pain in you back on check...

You will need a car to get here, although there is public transport, but timings could be a problem. It took me around 1.5 hours from the airport. A beautiful location. If you wanted a transfer it would cost around €40 each way.

We have been there already 3x times. We are walking guides and travel a lot and guide groups all over Canaries. These place is magic. The owners Juan and Juanna are so friendly and the homemade Dinners are fantastic. They will always use local ingredients and cook Canarien Style for you. It's a home from home with the opportunity to...

The setting of the hotel is great, with great views and good walks around about. The room is OK, nothing fancy. Can't believe the reviews that rave about the food. All we could say about it was it was filling and a reasonable price. We and another couple we met there were having guesses as to what various meals were...

I was looking for a place to stay in the Cruz de Tejeda area and stopped by to check on the prices. The tenant even helped me looking for prices in a town nearby (San Bartolomé de Tarajana) and actually offered me the breakfast for the next day. This is a good gesture I really appreciated. And I'm still thankful...

Nice familiar hotel, clean, well located to start or finish a hike. Good food with the vegetables from their garden for a good soup, the breakfast is less tasty. Very nice welcoming from the owner which are very attentive
